Where do we start?! A MASSIVE thank you to Dave, Kate, Amy and all the Special Event Tipis team for the most fantastic service we could ever have wished for. Without a doubt made our wedding tipi dream come true! Special Event Tipis were truly amazing from start to finish. Nothing was ever a problem and their expert friendly advice just made our experience so easy. As soon as we met Dave and Kate we knew this was the style of wedding for us, it was perfect and just how we imagined it all to be. You will not find anything like it – we would highly recommend this wonderful family with a super business and top class staff. THANK YOU ALL… SO SPECIAL

We had the most perfect Special Event Tipi wedding day - an amazing focal point for us and the guests, and the team were friendly, professional and super efficient from start to finish. If you're not sure whether to shell out the extra cash for a tipi wedding over a marquee, DO IT! It really made our weekend.

Special Event Tipis are simply the best! From start to finish their hands-on support for event planning is outstanding. We hired 3 large tipis for our daughter's stunning May wedding and loved the ability to pick and choose all the elements we needed for the big day from a well equipped and experienced company. They offered much flexibility and patience over our 18 month planning timescale as we changed tipi sizes, staging and dithered over bars and entrance walkways! The tipis provide a brilliant back-drop for any wedding day theme or colour scheme - one of the most exciting parts of the setting-up was spending a good 30 minutes late on the night before mixing the lights to get the perfect effect to set the mood for the day! The construction was smooth and efficient with good communication with all the different companies involved - site owners, sound engineers, caterers, etc. Thank you for a great job and making the day so memorable - people are still talking about it!

Absolutely brilliant Cowboy themed combined birthday party, 120 people thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. Tipis at Low House Looked fantastic. Thank you very much to Kate and Dav.

We recently hired two big tipis for the evening reception of our October wedding and were thrilled with the service we received. David and colleagues were so professional. We found them incredibly easy to deal with in the lead up to the wedding, they responded to all of our queries quickly and efficiently. Nothing seemed like too much trouble. All of our guests were so impressed with the tipis, we had so many compliments about them. We are so glad we decided to use Special Event Tipis rather than a standard wedding venue - cannot recommend them enough!
